Well, all streaks come to an end. Sacramento played hard all night, and Portland just couldn't find second gear, as the Kings beat the Blazers in the Rose Garden. This loss ends Portland's 8 game winning streak against the Kings, and their 5 game winning streak overall.
The game was much closer than the final score indicates, but Portland never truly seemed to be in the game either. Wesley Matthews scored 21 for Portland, Nicolas Batum added 16 points and 9 boards, and Andre Miller finished with 18 points, 5 rebounds, and 5 assists.
Take a look at our team the last time we lost to the Kings. (Thanks Cab for digging this up)
The Blazers finally get some rest, and will be seen next on TNT Thursday as the Celtics arrive in town.
Box score is here. Stay tuned for Dave's recap, and Ben's Media Row Report. -- Tim
